If you can’t beat ’em, buy ’em

Raincoast has a track record with big ideas.  In a move that garnered worldwide attention, we purchased an exclusive 24,700 km2 hunting license for $1.3 million in 2005. Our purchase ended commercial trophy hunting over this huge region.

Grizzlies, wolves, and black bears were no longer targets for commercial trophy hunters throughout much of British Columbia’s central coast.  We now have an agreement for a second hunting tenure in the heart of the Spirit Bear Territory.
